James Buchanan Short Bio
James Buchanan, Jr. (Mecersburg, Pennsylvania, April 23, 1791 – Lancaster, Pennsylvania, June 1, 1868) was the fifteenth President of the United States, holding office from 1857 to 1861. He was the only president who never married and the only citizen of Pennsylvania elected president. He was also the last president born in the eighteenth century. His government is criticized for its inaction against the division of the country that would trigger the outbreak of the Civil War.
He represented Pennsylvania first in the United States House of Representatives and then as a senator, was ambassador of the United States in Russia during the presidency of Andrew Jackson and Secretary of State during the presidency of James K. Polk. After rejecting a position in the Supreme Court, President Franklin Pierce appointed him ambassador of the United States to the United Kingdom.
Buchanan was nominated by the Democratic Party for the Presidential Election of 1856 and managed to win the Republican candidate, John C. Frémont and former President Millard Fillmore.
